Bachelor Nation is up in arms after Colton Underwood compared having your period to pooping your pants. When asked during a round of “Ask Me Anything” on E!'s LadyGang if he notices whether a girlfriend is “wearing cute underwear or period underwear," the 27-year-old Underwood seemed stunned that "period underwear" is really a thing. After co-host Becca Tobin explained that "girls have special underwear that’s designated for your time of the month," a visibly disgusted Underwood replied, "You keep ‘em around? Buy new underwear! Throw them away...That is so gross!" He then tried to rationalize his stance by adding, "So if you s**t your pants, are you gonna just wash them? No, you’re throwing them away." Needless to say, his female fans now feel like throwing him away. "This is why I’m forever grateful my boyfriend grew up with four sisters, so he’s not an ignoramus," one woman tweeted in response, while another wrote, "I’m sorry, but you talking about women’s periods is disgusting...My husband goes to the store to buy me tampons because he’s not an embarrassed 12-year-old."
